+10 To Stimulation.

I was ready to put this toy in my "rarely used" box, but it surprised me by being so powerful and stimulating. Just add 2 AAA batteries and you too can wield a toy that gives you +10 to pleasure! I only gave it 4/5 stars due to the pauses in between vibration settings and the hard to push button.
Quiet, waterproof, a beautiful shade of blue, powerful, soft nubs, low price.
Texture might be too much for some, it 'pauses' when switching vibration level.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I believe that this is a vibrator for any level of toy-lover. It's firm yet soft with tiny nubs all around the shaft. The color is a very beautiful blue with silver glitter embedded in the material. (It's much more attractive in person, the pictures don't do it justice.)

It's a fun time in the tub or shower on your own or with a partner, just bring some silicone lube along so things go smoothly.

This cannot be sterilized, so condoms are a must when sharing with partners or stimulating the outside of the anus. Never insert it anally, there is not a flared base to prevent an awkward hospital trip.

Material / Texture

The toy had absolutely no smell or taste directly out of the package, I still performed my customary once-over washing out of habit. The texture of the 6 rows of nubs felt rather nice, since they're not raised too far from the surface (I can't even give you a height measurement with my current tools) and only 1/2 a centimeter across. The material's firm but pliable, it won't be rough on the naughty bits, but the stimulation might be a bit intense for those who have more sensitivity.

This is a good start for those who are new to different types of texture, like myself. The toy also has a fair bit of drag to it.

Total number of nubs: 57. There are 6 alternating rows of 9 and 10 bumps.
    • Bumpy
    • No odor
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The toy is 7 inches (17.8 cm)long with 5 1/2 inches (14 cm) of it insertable. It's got a rather small girth for my liking, 3 1/2 (8.9 cm) at the largest point, but the bumps all over it make up for the lack of circumference.

It has 4 ridges in varying sizes that are barely perceptible when inserted (in my opinion).

It's not very discreet. It may not be a realistic-looking toy, but a bright blue, nubby rod is kind of obvious for sex toy usage.

If you have a bag to place it in or are prepared to wash it off when you reach your destination, it's certainly great for travel. The push button is not easily triggered, (A good thing for travel, not that great for play.) nor is it too large to fit in a bag.

A bog-standard DVD case for size comparison. (The length and width of the case is: 7 1/2 inches (19.1 cm) long and 5 1/2 inches (14 cm) wide.)

Functions / Performance / Controls

Since the toy is opaque, you can see that the motor is located near the end of the toy. There's a 1/2 inch (1/3 cm) bubble of air/nothing between the TPR and the motor casing. That doesn't hamper the power of the vibrations though, they're felt quite strongly at the tip and dissipate in power gradually the further you get from the tip.

It has three steady vibration settings with a push button (with a satisfying clicking noise) to cycle through them. You have to go through all the settings in order to turn the toy off and there's a pause between vibration levels that's quite annoying.

I'd say the waterproof function works sublimely, I haven't found moisture in the battery compartment when washing it or having it lurk about in the half-hour showers I take.

1st vibration level: 2 Vrooms and 1 Bee.
2nd vibration level: 3 Vrooms and 1 1/2 Bees.
3rd and final vibration level: 4 Vrooms and 2 Bees.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This is fairly easy to take care of, as it's made of TPR and regular plastic, it's compatible with all types of lube.
It does pick up a bit of lint/hair/dust and what have you, but it's easily rinsed off.
Cleaning-wise, all you really need is a washcloth, soap and water to tidy it up for the next use. (I recommend using a washcloth to clean around the little nubs rather than just running it under water.)

It doesn't react with any other material, so it's safe to toss it in with the rest of your toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Back of the package.

There were some generic battery placement instructions that showed all types of batteries and how they're supposed to go into the toy. The packaging's not discreet at all, being clear and having the various properties of the toy listed on it.
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

If you or your partner have long-ish pubic hair, make sure you're slicked up with lube or you'll be in for some painful pulling thanks to the amount of drag on the toy.

There's nothing in the battery compartment showing how to place the batteries, so I just popped the two AAA's in with one (-) and (+) side down. It worked just fine for either side.


I was honestly surprised that I enjoyed the toy. I've never really had anything with this much texture, nor such small girth for a dildo. If it didn't have the texture, I wouldn't enjoy it at all, it's much too thin for my tastes.

I only have an issue with the button being hard to push at times and the fact that there's no off button. I have to cycle through all the settings to shut it off.

    Awesome review, very informative and I like the use of pictures you added in. There were just the right amount in my opinion. I'm sure that push button can be annoying if its hard to push. Glad you enjoyed it otherwise.
